Christmas In (Almost) July!

Christmas in July!? Well, almost July anyway!

Yeah, Yeah, I know the holidays are over…as a matter of fact, we are getting closer to Holidays 2011, can you believe it? YIKES! Before it gets even later in the year, I wanted to post some photos I took in New York, Holidays 2010. I went home to see my family and acted like a TOURIST! <Gasp!>  I hate looking like a tourist anywhere, but especially my home state! Luckily it resulted in some really nice images, so I feel OK about the tourist thing!

Upon arrive in Grand Central station, I walked past Junior’s.  Actually, it’s a baby Junior’s, meaning it’s just a small shop where you get dessert to-go. They also have several full restaurants around NYC. They are famous for their cheesecake, which is the ONE dessert I don’t eat (although I eat everything else!). I could not help but take a photo of the boxes and boxes of cheesecakes stacked in the tiny shop for all of the holiday travelers!

The Empire State Building is styled in Art Deco, which I love! From this angle though, it’s hard to tell, but I do love how you get the feeling that the building is just so big.

I’m pretty sure that if I had lived in the city when I was in high school learning photography, I would have taken these subway photos back then : )


Per their website, Mcsorley’s “can boast of being New York City’s oldest continuously operated saloon” as it opened in 1854! What the what? Yes, 1854! We stopped in to check it out, how could we not!

You can’t go to NYC around the holidays and not go into FAO Schwarz, come on, am I right? This was by FAR the biggest stuffed animal I have seen in my whole life!

Remember the movie “Big”? If you grew up the 80′s like I did, this next photo will both excite you and make you want to cry an little (because if you don’t win the lottery, you probably will never own one, sorry!).

The snow makes everything so quiet…
